Abstract

Good nutrition is deemed mandatory during hospitalization to prevent patients from vulnerable infections, enabling speedy recovery, fast wound healing and avoid frequent hospital readmissions. Clinical dietitian in a healthcare setup is the right person to ensure that patients are getting enough nutrition. Dietitians discuss and find out the nutritional status of the patient and provide support during the course of hospitalization as well as provide a nutritional plan to be followed at home at the time of discharge.
